I did a large canvas a few years ago that I’ve never been entirely satisfied with.  I used bronze metallic paint to highlight the texture but it isn’t working properly.  So I now want to bring it up to speed.  The smal piece on paper that I did today is a kind of mock-up for the work I want to do soon on the older large canvas – which looks like this at the moment:

Abstract Acrylic

This canvas is 47″ x 39″ and about 2″ deep – I haven’t really had anywhere to work on it because of its size but I’m determined next week to take it downstairs and get started. Wish me luck!

    beautiful paintings. I like the colors you use and the compositions, the one with the gold is very nice. I once tried to integrate silver leaf with acrylic paint. That’s nice, too. Regards Mitza

    Hi Mitza! Thanks very much – i’m leaving the metallic stuff alone for a bit, I think it’s too easy to get hung up on it 🙂 Hope you are having a lovely weekend. Cheers for now Janice
